Stephen from Sutton Coldfield was badly injured when he was involved in an accident at work and needed help with legal claims in Sutton Coldfield. Stephen had been loading a pick-up with heavy palettes when he felt a sudden pain in his back. He cried out in pain and fell to the ground. Stephen was unable to stand up straight and he was in agony. His colleagues were very concerned and took him to the accident and emergency unit.

A doctor examined Stephen and sent him for some tests. He learned that he had sustained a slipped disc and would possibly require an operation in order to fix it. However, the first stage of treatment involved a course of physiotherapy and Stephen was sent home with a letter for his GP. He visited her the next day and she put him on the waiting list for treatment. In the meantime, she advised Stephen to take as much rest as possible for the next few days. The GP gave Stephen a list of basic exercises for him to complete as soon as he was feeling able and suggested that he try swimming in order to stay active.
Stephen was unable to return to work for some time and his income was greatly reduced as a result. He learned that he should have been provided with training to learn the correct way to lift and load at work. His employer simply had not bothered to offer this education and Stephen was enduring pain and misery as a result. He began to have a growing feeling of injustice. If only he had been advised as to the correct way to lift in order to minimise the risk of injury. A few hours spent with an instructor could have saved him months of discomfort. So when his daughter suggested that he could be entitled to compensation, Stephen was keen to find out more.
He asked his daughter if she could recommend help with legal claims in Sutton Coldfield solicitor who could give him some legal advice. She replied, ‘Just give Accident Advice Helpline a ring and they can sort everything. They helped my boyfriend get compensation when he was in a car accident and he said they were fantastic.
